I broke into the 120's this past week which feels like a huge accomplishment for me! I don't really ever remember being in the 120's as an adult. I think even in high school & college I was in the low 130's. It makes me happy to know that I've s... Read more

I'm feeling good. I'm glad :) Although the scale isn't reflecting a lot of progress since 14 weeks out I'm seeing changes in the mirror. My diet has stayed about the same. I am still on a 3 day on, 1 day off lifting schedule followed by 35 minut... Read more

I'm 14 weeks out today and feel like I haven't made any real progress in the past 2 weeks. I'm sticking to the program but the scale seems to be stuck between 139-140. A tad frustrating considering my activity level and diet right now. I was hop... Read more
